    IX works best when it has a small air gap between layers. Can't really get that with just one layer.
    I suppose there could be a legit use for a single layer IX UQ, I'm just not sure what it would be.

    This is all so confusing. Guess I'll just be buying an UQ eventually when I can afford one!
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    IX Underquilt - DIY

    I think I'm going to give this a whirl next week. What should my starting measurements be if my hammock size is 132"x58" wide?

    Also tttgear doesn't seem to carry Ix anymore. Any ideas where to score some?

    DIY Gear Supply says they have some in stock

    IX Underquilt - DIY

    How much difference in temps with an army poncho liner take you over just a sheet of ripstop nylon as a shell? Is it a big difference?

    One person's experience:

    Recently setup my HH Explorer Deluxe. Cloudy, 68*, light wind. I was wearing light fleece jacket / pants and heavy socks. Expecting a low of 62*. With nothing underneath and a PLTQ my back was cool. Got up and rigged my single layer PLUQ - comfy. Woke up several house later - temp 61* - still good. Woke up a couple hours later - temp 55* - cold. Got up, removed the PLUQ, rigged my IXUQ - added fleece liner to the PLTQ - comfy. Several hours later - temp 49* - still comfy.

    Previous experience tells me my IXUQ is good to a little under 40*.

    What this tells me about me and my rig is that my PLUQ/PLTQ are good for summer nights where the low will be above 60*. If I even think it may be cooler, I should have my IXUQ and possibly a down vest/jacket to add to the PLTQ.

    I should note that I had not eaten in hours before bed. Never underestimate the warming power a Snickers bar can offer

    I have a MMG Shamu that I've used for my gathered end hammocks in the warmer weather (down to 50*). Recently changed over to the WBRR, so am about to build an IX UQ for the warmer months using my Lynx down UQ as a pattern.

    Anyone else tried this yet before I get too far into it?

    Thx,

    Thanks for sharing. The wife and I got pretty cold a couple weekends ago in just our fleece bags, so we decided to give this a whirl. We ordered from DIYGearSupply. I'm hoping to have everything within the next 1.5 weeks so that we can make and take our UQs on our first ever backpacking trip.
